Abstract: The last decade, efforts have been undertaken to develop concepts for energy efficient buildings up to passive and even zero energy standard. However, apart from a low energy consumption these buildings should also have a good indoor climate in order to be accepted by the main public. In this context, the real performance of a zero energy office in Flanders, Belgium has been analyzed through monitoring of the indoor climate during winter/spring and summer and occupant surveys. The building was also assessed by means of 2 sustainability assessment tools. In general, the measurements showed a good indoor air quality, except for a very low relative humidity in cold periods. Weakest points were a musty smell in the morning and heat accumulation in the office during a longer hot period. The sustainability assessment showed the clear need for the personnel to be better informed on the concept of the building.
